What’s worst? Getting a colonoscopy, or getting mocked while you’re passed out for that colonoscopy?
A patient identified only as D.B. successfully sued his anesthesiologist for defamation and medical malpractice after she and other doctors relentlessly mocked him while he was unconscious. By accident, he had recorded the whole conversation, and that recording has now paid off to the tune of $500,000.
Can you really sue a doctor for making fun of you?
